A study jointly led by the University of Birmingham and University of Edinburgh has revealed that a new scanning technology could almost halve the number of liver biopsies carried out on people with fatty liver disease.
Scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a program that is able to help manage enormous datasets. The software, named Scanpy, is a candidate for analyzing the Human Cell Atlas, and has recently been published in Genome Biology.
AMU team of researchers led by Dr Honorata Hafke-Dys from AMU Institute of Acoustics (Faculty of Physics), have designed a new and intelligent stethoscope. They called it: StethoMe. The design was possible thanks to 1.5 M PLN invested in the project by TDJ Pitango Ventures, the Polish-Israeli innovative start-up fund.
For people with celiac disease and gluten-sensitivities, the number of food options in the stores is growing. But current tests for gluten are not finding all of the substance in foods, resulting in some products being labeled "gluten free" when they really aren't.
A new method for monitoring interactions between cells, dubbed LIPSTIC by its creators, is much more than a cosmetic improvement over existing techniques. The breakthrough, led by The Rockefeller University assistant professor Gabriel Victora, offers scientists in a wide range of disciplines a powerful new tool for studying complex biological events as they play out in live animals.
How do you visualise extremely small forces connected to processes in our body, such as embryonic growth and development? Researchers at Wageningen experimented with a combination of laser technology and chemical knowledge, coming up with a sensor consisting of one single molecule that is a few hundred times more accurate than existing devices used to measure nano-forces on the molecular level.

Medical radiation is a double-edged sword: from a diagnostic perspective, it allows us to look inside the human body, while it can also be used to treat cancer. However, each use exposes patients to radiation, which in turn can pose health risks and should, therefore, be avoided. This is where the European joint research program MEDIRAD comes in.
The trend towards miniaturization is progressing in medical technology. This in turn also means that electronics must be adapted to size relations, for example of implants. Smaller structures and components are in demand as never before. Thus, the demands on the technology and production simultaneously grow.
